Testicular torsion surgery recovery

Patient

Q: I received surgery for testicular torsion about 4 days ago. I have stitches on both testicles; my right one was torted but my left one was operated on also for preventative measures. I am wondering how long I have to wait before it is safe to ejaculate, whether by masturbation or by sexual activity. Thank you.

Doctor

A:   Recovery from testicular torsion surgery is relatively short. Recovery varies between 10 days to 2 weeks. After this time you may resume sexual activity.
